Sessions at Txola – December/January

This month I’ll be spinning at Txola twice, including the fin de año / new years eve.  For this night, I’ll be joined by an old friend from Toronto, a true Canadian authority on hip hop, r&b, soul, the legend that is JohnBronski.  We were fortunate to be in the spot when the first hip hop vinyl made its way 500 miles from NYC to Toronto.  Getting down to Disco Sounds record shop off Yonge Street, to hear the new style on a punishing sound system.  The speakers in there, Cerwin Vega’s I think, were a bit too much, ‘cos when we got home with our latest purchases, the punch was missing.  Good Times.

Scalper – Flesh & Bones

Scalper
Scalper

When I first heard that a London-based rapper of Pakistani origin was producing/performing under the name Made in Britain, I was intrigued.   Using the same name as the  film starring Tim Roth was quite some lateral thinking. I didn’t have to look to far for him, as he became a frontman for Fun-da-mental during our Erotic Terrorism phase.

Scalper (aka Made in Britain) is now based in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand, and is dropping his debut album Flesh & Bones early 2010.

My man has been working hard.

There will be a single featuring the guitar chilling supa cris’ beat of Zero, with it’s reference to Public Enemy. On the flip will be Black Glory.  I only just got the tracks an hour ago, and they are my rewind champions of the week.  The vocals are produced in a manner that they seep into your skull box and re-wire the nerve endings.  Sounds like fun huh?!
